What Does Love Mean

What does "Love" means ?
Leave a Comment

I thought I would share something I received yesterday from a dear friend. It will give you a chuckle and a tear. It is the sweetest list of answers from 4-8 year olds to the age old question “What Does Love Mean?”. The saying “out of the mouths of babes” truly applies. All parents have heard similar wisdom from their young ones I’m sure. Enjoy!

Slow down for three minutes to read this. It is so worth it. Touching words from the mouths of babes. What does Love mean? A group of professional people posed this question to a group of 4 to 8 year-olds, “What does love mean?” The answers they got were broader and deeper than anyone could have imagined. See what you think:-----

“When my grandmother got arthritis, she couldn’t bend over and paint her toenails anymore. So my grandfather does it for her all the time, even when his hands got arthritis too. That’s love.“

Rebecca- age 8

“When someone loves you, the way they say your name is different. You just know that your name is safe in their mouth.”

Billy – age 4

“Love is when a girl puts on perfume and a boy puts on shaving cologne and they go out and smell each other.”

Karl – age 5

“Love is when you go out to eat and give somebody most of your French fries without making them give you any of theirs.”

Chrissy – age 6

“Love is what makes you smile when you’re tired.”

Terri – age 4

“Love is when my mommy makes coffee for my daddy and she takes a sip before giving it to him, to make sure the taste is OK.”

Danny – age 7

“Love is when you kiss all the time Then when you get tired of kissing, you still want to be together and you talk more. My Mommy and Daddy are like that. They look gross when they kiss”

Emily – age 8

“Love is what’s in the room with you at Christmas if you stop opening presents and listen.”

Bobby – age 7 (Wow!)

“If you want to learn to love better, you should start with a friend who you hate,”

Nikka – age 6 (we need a few million more Nikka’s on this planet)

“Love is when you tell a guy you like his shirt, then he wears it everyday.”

Noelle – age 7

“Love is like a little old woman and a little old man who are still friends even after they know each other so well.”

Tommy – age 6

“During my piano recital, I was on a stage and ! I was scared. I looked at all the people watching me and saw my daddy waving and smiling. He was the only one doing that. I wasn’t scared anymore.”

Cindy – age 8

“My mommy loves me more than anybody You don’t see anyone else kissing me to sleep at night.”

Clare – age 6

“Love is when Mommy gives Daddy the best piece of chicken.”

Elaine-age 5

“Love is when Mommy sees Daddy smelly and sweaty and still says he is handsomer than Robert Redford.”

Chris – age 7

“Love is when your puppy licks your face even after you left him alone all day.”

Mary Ann – age 4

“I know my older sister loves me because she gives me all her old clothes and has to go out and buy new ones.”

Lauren – age 4

“When you love somebody, your eyelashes go up and down and little stars come out of you.” (what an image)

Karen – age 7

“Love is when Mommy sees Daddy on the toilet and she doesn’t think it’s gross.”

Mark – age 6

“You really shouldn’t say ‘I love you’ unless you mean it. But if you mean it, you should say it a lot. People forget.”

Jessica – age 8

And the final one — Author and lecturer Leo Buscaglia once talked about a contest he was asked to judge. The purpose of the contest was to find the most caring child. The winner was a four year old child whose next door neighbor was an elderly gentleman who had recently lost his wife. Upon seeing the man cry, the little boy went into the old gentleman’s yard, climbed onto his lap, and just sat there. When his Mother asked what he had said to the neighbor, the little boy said, “Nothing, I just helped him cry”

My Thinking ::--

At times I feel I grasp hold of the meaning of the word, only to find it crumbling away in my hands.

So after many years I feel its sharing and caring.
The world gives you that rollercoaster of life.
The ups and Downs.

But its having that someone with you that understands you knows you, cares for you, and shares with you these moments.
So you can come out the other end together and stronger.

Sleeping under the trees

fRom here

Ever since i was little i have loved lying under the trees and looking up at the patterns and shadowing that the leaves make. I have always wished i could live in a tree house with a large glass roof.

Ikea, hell or heaven?

I know, Ikea is like being stuck in hell, everyone is stressed, no natural light etc... but i do love it. I have wanted this mirror and bed combo for a while now, and at only 369 for the pair you can't really go wrong. They look so much more expensive. Has to be done.

Moroccan pouffe

I have had an obsession for a long while. Pouffe's. I really want one but at £65-80 for a good-en they always seem a little out of my student budget, and there is always something else i need a little more when it comes to birthdays and christmas. Here is a couple of rooms with pouffe's that feed my current obsession. They look just stunning with the moroccan trays on-top too. i am hopefully off to Morocco next year so i will just have to wait.

Brighton Pavilion

So I am from Brighton, and being from brighton i of course love the Royal Pavilion.  The pavilion is a former royal residence built in the early 19th century as a seaside retreat for the then prince regent. Wish someone would build me a seaside pavilion to chill out in. I swear when i was younger the roof was green though.
